boehner after the passage of a bill that temporarily suspends the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling through mid-may. it passed in the house of 285-144. briefing is about 15 minutes. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> good afternoon everyone. with the passage of this bill today, it's pretty clear that we are sending a message to the democrat-controlled senate, it's time to do your job. the principle is pretty simple. no budget, no pay. american families have to do a budget and they understand you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. we're committed to doing a budget on the house side, a budget that will balance over the next 10 years. it's time for the senate and the president to show the american people how they are willing to balance the budget over the next 10 years. >> today's vote was the first step towards trying to resolve the nation's fiscal crisis in a responsible manner. look forward to working with the white house and the senate to do so. it's interesting to note with after almost four years

has tacitly endorsed a house republican plan to lift the debt ceiling for the next four months. the measure would lift enforcement of the government's $16.40 trillion borrowing limit until may 18. in a statement, the white house said it would not oppose the temporary move. a house vote is expected today. protests on both sides of the reproductive rights debate were held on tuesday to mark the 40th anniversary of roe v wade, the supreme court decision that legalized abortion. dozens of opponents rallied outside the supreme court's ahead of what they say will be a larger march near capitol hill on friday. meanwhile in jackson, mississippi, abortion rights advocates held a demonstration outside of the state's lone abortion clinic which has faced repeated threats of closure. a new poll coinciding with the fourth anniversary shows national support for abortion rights is at an all-time high. a record 70% of americans oppose overturning roe v wade, and for the first time on record, a majority now believes abortion should be legal in all or most cases. two people are in custody after a

debt of $16 trillion, no end in sight. so you have a long-term threat we have to focus our eyes on. but we also have a short-term threat, that is raising the debt ceiling or not. >> are you going to vote for the boehner plan? >> no. >> why not? >> well, let's get to the long-term threat, i want to do whatever is necessary to avoid the risk of bankruptcy. to me, that would be difficult for our country, devastating to our economy, far worse than any economic period seen in the history of the united states. in my judgment if the federal government becomes insolvent or goes into bankruptcy because the debt has accumulated to such an extent that it overwhelmed our ability to pay. in that context, then, i'm willing to raise the debt ceiling if one or two things happens. first, the constitutional amendment must pass the united states congress and sent to the people. >> that could happen. >> certainly may not happen if we don't try, the second is, substantial spending cuts. >> according to john boehner that is not going to happen either. >> a sincere effort of trying to address the problem

strategy. they say they believe they have the votes to pass a short term debt ceiling increase today and seek deep intending cuts later. their plan was to spend the $16.4 trillion debt limit to allow the u.s. to keep borrowing money to pay its bills for another three months, then increase the legal limit to that new debt level. confusing but important politically. in exchange they're calling on the senate to pass a budget by spring. >> rimportant chess move in the debt talks. exit polls from tuesday's election in israel show netanyahu will almost certainly hold on to his job. the surprising surge of a new centrist party has weakened netanyahu's power, but could ease strained relations with the u.s. and signal a good sign for more flexibility for peace efforts. >> so much closer than anyone thought. >>> a candid look at mental illness in a very famous family. mayor yell he called running from crazy. more from her and her documentary coming up.

. in the house in both cases, the debt ceiling bill was being passed and the senate used it as a vehicle, not as a threat, for deficit reduction legislation. over the past two years, we have achieved $2.50 trillion in deficit reduction. we set an important precedent that includes both spending cuts and new revenue. i close it firmly urging we should proceed with this effort, focusing further, not damaging the effort by attempting to use the debt ceiling for political leverage. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, mr. levin. it is my pleasure to welcome the witnesses today appeared we have four witnesses on today's panel. we will first hear from lee casey. he is a former official in the office of legal counsel. second, we will welcome william hoagland. he is also the former director of budget and appropriations for the senate majority leader and former staff director of the senate budget committee. third on the panel is dr. j.d. foster, the senior fellow in the economics of fiscal policy at the heritage foundation. finally, we will hear from dr. simon johnson, the professor of entrepren

-- in additional debt ceiling increase and wouldn't be balanced for several decades. let's stop playing games with the form and let's sit down and work on the things we agree upon. i think the american public would support us if we took out tens of billions of dollars of unnecessary spending for redundant nuclear weapons, to reform the scandal that is the crop insurance program that in cents people to plant land that they should not plant and drives up losses. let's accelerate health care reform, like we're doing in oregon, that would save over $1 trillion if it were applied nationally. let's get down and do it. act, don't debate. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield one minute to a distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from nebraska, mr. smith. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. smith: mr. speaker, i rise today in support of h.r. 325. the bill is an important step toward getting our fiscal house in order because it requires the senat

in reductions and a trillion dollar increase in the debt ceiling. it's out there. that's not going to work. but with president obama, with his skills, if he calls together simpson and bowles or his advisors and says here is my plan to save medicare, here is my plan to save medicaid, here is my plan to fix the debt, i want bipartisan support to do that, he will get it. now, at first because it's a difficult issue, everybody will say oh, no, we can't do it that way, and then we'll sit down and talk and we'll come up with a result. and i think the republican leader has shown that he is prepared and willing to do that. he has said it. he's done it on other issues. i don't know what else the rest of us can do to show -- to show that, so what i am trying to respectfully say today, as much as anything, to the president of the united states, is congratulations on your inauguration. i was there. i was proud to participate in it for a chance to say for a minute and a half why we celebrate for the 57th time the inauguration of an american president, we celebrate it because our country is distinguishe

the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144, speaker boehner said he's optimistic that will happen. >> if both chambers have a budget. democrat budget from the senate, republican from the house now you've got competing visions, for how we address this problem. out of those competing visions, we're going to find some common ground. >> ifill: but house minority

that they were not going to be able to win a spending cut fight using the debt ceiling vote. >> reporter: the clock is ticking. the country will max out its credit card at $16.4 trillion in several weeks, risking possible default on the nation's debt unless congress okay's more borrowing. the house is considering a short-term fix. lift the debt ceiling for a few months to take the pressure off, but require both house and senate to pass a budget. if they fail, congress would not get paid. >> you can't go for months and months without a paycheck. and what this does is basically says that your pay gets escrowed, put on hold until you pass a budget. >> reporter: trying to turn up pressure on democrats in the senate, who have not passed a regular budget in four years, relying on this comparison. >> didn't exist the last time the senate passed a budget. >> the last time they passed a budget the ipad hadn't even been introduced. >> it is expected a block of conservatives probably will not support this. house leadership hopes that it will pass. it does provide some breathing room. it does not en

, but neither will we compromise a long-term extension of the debt ceiling without slashing wasteful federal spending, enacting meaningful entitlement reform, and ending the err why of trillion dollar deficits. by taking this temporary action, we are keeping the focus where it is needed and where it's intended and help resolving the coming debates on sequestration, the expiring continuing resolution, and the f.y. 2014 budget to fiscal discipline and entitlement reform. suspending the debt ceiling until may 19 provides the house and the senate with much needed time to pass their budgets and then consider how best to deal with the sequester. the underlying bill also takes action to ensure that the senate becomes an active partner which we want and need and the american people, i think, expect in order for our efforts to reform federal spending. for nearly four years, the senate has failed to meet its most basic obligation -- passing a budget. during this time, the senate has collected its own paychecks despite being derelict in its most important duty. in the private sector there are consequen
